Survey Shows Preference Split for Greece’s Eurovision Entry Pick

ATHENS – It’s half a year away but fans are already making their choices known as to who Greece should put up for the kitschy Eurovision 2023 contest that sometimes foreigners perform for countries to which they have no attachment.

In a survey by Eurovision Fun based on more than 5,100 votes from 54 countries, the winner was Klavdia, only 16 votes ahead of Vasilis Kourtis, with Evangelia third, then Melissa Mantzoukis and Jimmy Sion.

The public seems to be divided, having voted for both Klavdia and Vasilis Kourtis, by a percentage of around 30 percent, the site noted, but when it comes to votes only from Greece, the winner was Kourtis.

Greece has participated in Eurovision 42 ties since it began in 1974, not taking part in six contests and got its first win in 2005 with My Number One by Helena Pararizou but since 2000 has been in the top 5 only once.
